Wander down Preposition Path!
The supervolcano of Yellowstone has wonders to show you and your students. Third, fourth, and fifth graders hike the meadows and mountains, encounter wildlife in the wilderness, and stand in awe of gushing geysers. They stare at glurpy mud pots and vibrant hot springs and glimpse a bison or two. Along the way, they learn about prepositions and prepositional phrases.
Preposition Path includes . . .
- Two major areas to explore: the wilds of Yellowstone and the vast array of geysers and hot springs
- Eight adventures that teach about prepositions and prepositional phrases and ways to use them in sentences
- Two robust activities that allow students to apply what they have learned
- The Preposition Path quiz to test their learning
- Standards alignment and vocabulary throughout the adventures
You can project videos on the board and have students vote on their next adventure, or you can have students work independently, completing assignments and quizzes at their own pace. They can hand in Google doc assignments through a Google Classroom workflow, or print them out and fill them in by hand. And your students will have a lot to write about—brimming with their amazing discoveries!
